The search for a sucker

McKinley's drama class presented their showcase this week. For one small, tiny, little, miniscule part she needed a sucker. Not a Dum-Dum, but a big swirly old-fashioned one.

I looked at Wal-Mart and Target but couldn't find one. Any other kind of sucker, it was there.

My last chance? The store I don't like to go to. Where I'm a minority. Where I don't understand any of the announcements or words in the music being played. And where I certainly don't want to walk by the meat department.

They have obscure things so I thought I had a shot. We searched all over and finally found a unique candy area. I couldn't read any of the titles but figured out the things on the stick weren't suckers but chocolate covered marshmallows in the shape of a foot.


I also found these.

Those would be fish, and shrimp.

Dried apparently.

Let's process this.

They're in the candy area.

Are they sweet?

Are they necessary?

Anyone out there know?

Ha! I know what store you were at! :)

I would have gone to Cracker Barrel, I'm pretty sure they have them there. And then I would have eaten some chicken and dumplings, just because I was there.

They DO have them at Cracker Barrel. I saw them over the Thanksgiving holiday.
